Someone once said a smile is the sexiest curve on the body. What would you do if you knew that your smile might just be the end of ever hearing the word no again? Have you ever started laughing and felt really good while you enjoyed that laughing moment? Smiling has been known to boost our immune system and release endorphins that make us feel good! A simple full smile uses less muscles than a straight face or a frown, a smile will make your day more optimistic and create an upward spiral for your happiness and joy. It’s impossible for you to smile at someone and not receive a smile back unless the person that you are smiling at is intentionally trying to win the “butt whole of the day” award.
Smiling can also be an open door to levels of trust between you, your peers or even someone new. It’s hard to trust a “fast talker” because it seems that they are trying trick us by quickly piling a lot of information on us with hopes that we just might miss something. Meanwhile, a smiling face or even a smiling voice over the phone is calming, convincing, and trustworthy. I don’t know about you but I personally feel more at ease if I am visiting the doctor and the nurse has great energy and a bright smile. It’s a double bonus if the nurse is a male with great energy and a bright smile * wink *
Smiling is magnetic. I smile at strangers, babies, friendly pets and even the people that stand on the side of the street waving and turning their advertisement signs to make a couple of dollars. I’m actually smiling while writing this article and guess what? I probably just made you smile too. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard the word no. My smile has been my moneymaker, not because I’ve spent years wearing braces because I have not, it’s because my smile is genuine. When I smile I mean it. I’m not a “grinner” because I was taught that some people could receive grinning offensively but there is no mistaking a beautiful smile. It’s impossible for you to not feel the energy or feel the aura behind a genuine smile.
Today I have a challenge for you. It’s not a dare or a double dare. It’s actually a physical challenge! I challenge you to a battle of smiles! Try smiling and attracting positive energy your way for the rest of the day. I can’t promise you that somebody will not try to turn your smile upside down because someone might. However, I can promise that you have the power to control what you do and how you communicate to others and if you have successfully finished this article you have officially accepted the physical challenge! Go on… SMILE!
